. the republican budget cuts non-defense discretionary spending to levels lower than at any time since o.m.b. started keeping track a half a century ago. the republican budget would set annual domestic spending at rates lower than 1962, when there were no pell grants at all, when 30% of american seniors lived in poverty. but that's not extreme. a democratic budget that is 50-50 spending cuts and revenues, that's a left-wing manifesto. the democratic budget has $975 billion in new spending cuts. it has $975 billion in new revenue in order to close that budget gap 50-50. that means including the deficit reduction that we've already done -- this, of $1.8 trillion -- we will be in total at $4.3 trillion in deficit reduction, which is probably just a little bit over the target that most of the experts have given us to hit. and about $2.8 trillion of that, of the $4.3 trillion will come in spending cuts. $600 billion has come in new tax revenue, and $975 billion will come from loopholes for a total of $1.6 trillion coming from new revenues. some left-wing manifesto. $1 trillion more in spendin

that did not like a defense missile, you have to knock one out that is worth $380 million, tell us about it. >> this is just ridiculous, larry, so $380 million in the continuing resolution that was just on the senate floor, over a trillion dollars in spending and yet we have sequester $380 million for a missile to nowhere that the army does not want that will never produce anything. we have already spent $3 billion on it. so my amendment was to strike that wasteful spending and by the way, it has bipartisan support. the democratic chairman of the armed services amendment called it a waste of money. can you believe it in we cannot strike $380 million of wasteful expending and put that money to real use for our troops and that's why -- >> you know, harry reid a accused the sequester of killing the eight marines. this terrible the exercise, reid of all people should want to save money in the pentagon in order to put more money back in training which i may add that the marine corp denied, but the point is, you are up his alley, why is he not behind you on this? >> i agree, if we cannot cut some

, banning gay marriage in california. and the other is defensive marriage act, which defines marriage at a federal level. what i think you're going to see is a focus on two justices, anthony kennedy, the traditional swing vote on the supreme court, and chief justice john roberts. they see the wave developing in support of gay marriage. we have seen that developing. now, a majority support in the country is moving very, very quickly. they don't want to risk that. what they're likely to do is create the space for states to make their own decisions. look at this clue from anthony kennedy from a speech this month.

you wen education, weaker in defense, by laying people off in jobs, it makes you weaker because your unemployment rate is higher. it is like looking in the mirror and wishing your weaker. we have to be stronger. can we make cuts? sure we can and we have and we'll make more. but we ought to be focused on being stronger, about growing the economy and growing jobs. and that's why the approach that the senate takes is the right approach. because by utilizing revenues appropriately, reforming tax expenditures to reduce they will on the equivalent of% o 7% or 8a year, thee myriad of tax expenditures in the tax code were able to find cuts. the senate budget in achieving additional deficit reduction is a balanced approach that will make us stronger, not weaker, and that's why it is my great hope that we will pass this in a significant way. i thank the chairman. i thank you, madam president. mrs. murray: madam president? the presiding officer: the senator from washington. mrs. murray: i want to thank the senators virginia and hawaii for excellent statements and really laying out the framework
